    Ride On A Train.

    Today is like every other day. I board the train quickly-can't be late. I choose a seat near the back. Few sit there. The light is broken, but that's fine. I don't need a light today. Alone I sit, lost in my thoughts, swirling, swirling. ..A slight noise startles me back to...

    My God My Broken Heart

    I walk in the room to see my baby girl for the first time.... She lays there so helpless, tubes down her throat and in her nose.  IV's are attached everywhere.I start to cry as the tears roll down my cheeks.   All I can think to do is sing to her as I did every day when she...

    To start with kindness,

    is at times hard, but I keep envisioning my mother's smile, in between soft words that bring me warmth. She was a mother, in ever way, but to those who envy, she simply was, a kind grandma. Her last words to me were all I ever hoped for, but she could not speak them, in front of...

    Hi EP! I'm new here I just want to share an

    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    No matter what happens,

    no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen...

    I had a bit of a breakthrough this evening.

    I have been listening to "Thought Vibration" a book on the power of thoughts. There is a book that will get you to the core issue in humanity. We all must admit that though we share the same air as beasts and unreasoning creatures, the difference is the human ability to reason...

    How to attain mental peace.

    Safety Net There is none in life.

    We all get hurt. We all feel the pain

    and loss of something. There are times when there is nothing you can feel except it. Even if you feel like the times have lasted an eternity, it will end. Someday you will feel just even a tiny bit better and life will move on. Don't give up, life will get better.

    The butterfly effect is an incredible thing.
